Talking Using black grease as a temp hair dye?

I'm looking to do a Loki crossplay somewhere in the future. However, I have very pale skin and the idea of a permanent black hair dye makes me think Morticia Addams with my skin tone. My friend recommended using black grease, but I have white/blonde hair, and I'm afraid it will stain. Does anyone have any experience in using this method?

Yea..don't..They have black gell that you can buy that's a temp dye and only last a couple weeks..

OH, there's also things like if you use normal gel in your hair and get it nice and slicked back, use black hairspray..I used this in middle school for halloween..It stayed in ALL NIGHT, but washed out the second my head hit the water, be careful in the rain too..

Even "temporary" dyes always end up being more like permanent on my hair. Be careful. Why not try using a wig instead? Arda has a few wigs made to be slicked back that would work.

ew. No. Never use grease!! It does not work the same and good luck cleaning and washing that our when youre done!

I think your best option is to go with a brown black or charcoal black dye. Its not as intense as pure pitch black
